Apparently VirusScan took the liberty of moving into Outlook 2000 territory and now they're not getting along.

I suggest you reinstall Outlook 2000 right over the existing one - this should change the settings VirusScan changed.

Good luck.

running version 5.0 of Mcafee?
back off to version 4.5, those dats are better.
integrated Mcafee is buggy.
disable your VP, or uninstall if this does not kep it from crashing reinstall Outlook as a last resort, try version 4.5 of Viruscan.
VP isvery aggressive with attachments to the point of being almost worthless, I like it system scan only, it will catch an attachment.
there are better attachment scanners out there, ask your ISP what they use.

apparently the bug was in the installation process when it uninstalled the previous version(not too cleanly).A clean install solved the problem
